    Default Toddler-proofing sliding wardrobe doors

    Is there a way to do this? Our sliding wardrobe doors slide easily and a toddler could easily open them and get into everything, or fall if they were using them to balance. Is there a device available to "lock" them?

    Are you renting?

    A snib lock into the top or bottom?
    Our toilet doors slide and have locks, they are built into the door.., they have a small thing you turn and it latches into a tiny thing on the other side.

    If you are renting, try a piece of dowel/ broom handle between the door and wall.

    That's a good idea, thanks. We own our house but it's brand new and we don't really want to destroy it for short term sanity, but will have to do something...

    Put a piece of wood at the bottom.
